Amy's fiancé Rory is having his stag night just before their wedding and none other than the Doctor who pops through the cake. He's soon aboard the Tardis where they travel to 16th century Venice where the Doctor is intrigued by Lady Rosanna Calvieri who runs a prestigious school for girls. Guido is Venetian who is now trying to get his daughter Isabella out of there when they all realize the school is a nest of vampires. The Doctor thinks they're made it too easy for them to learn about their vampirism and thinks they are hiding something far more sinister. Written by
As the doctor is talking to Rosanna by the throne, the orb on the right arm becomes open. See more »
I need an answer, Doctor. A partnership? Any which way you choose...
I don't think that's such a good idea, do you? I'm a Timelord, you're a big fish... think of the children.

The nonsense continues as the group ends up in Venice where everybody speaks the king's tongue. Nevermind about that, it is just a funny line. It is 1580.
Let's copy and paste the script. Vampires equal women in danger, which equals Amy in distress. There are them vampires hiding in a building recruiting women, therefore Amy goes in and attempts to open the backdoor for the others, the one the good Doctor will later open with his magic stick when they are on the run. The plan goes wrong, of course. We cannot have Amy escape danger that easily.
Vampires get killed by daylight, but this happens on and off, depending on when it is needed for the story. At some point it becomes clear that letting go of any consistency and realism makes comedy fail somehow. I know that in the next episode I will no Ionger care that Amy gets into danger. She gets saved anyway, the monsters get defeated and nothing bad comes from it.
What is the reason to watch this? It is predictable, the quirky attitude of the doctor gets tedious, there is nobody to relate to and nor is the situation.
There is one redeeming aspect in this episode. How do you feel about exterminating an entire species, doctor?
Now, that is something to sink your teeth in.
